Impressions In Life

Day 5 of "2013 Ultimate Blog Challenge" : Impressions In Life

Most of us never really stop to think before we say or do something. In fact, I'm pretty sure, we've all been this careless at some point in our life or the other. We never realize that our every word and act is affecting the people around us in many conscious and subconscious ways.

As this picture says - "It is impossible to walk on the beach without making an imprint in the sand and taking some of it with us." Same way, it is impossible to walk through life, without rubbing off onto the people we meet along the way, and taking something from them too.

Every time we meet people and interact with them, we leave an impression on them, by our words and actions, and they do the same to us. A random kind word, an unexpected compliment (yes even to a stranger), a genuine warm smile, a spontaneous act of helpfulness... they can go a long way in making someone's day. Same way, it is equally easy to prick someone's happy bubble by a sharp word or an unkind look.

Yet, most of us remain ignorant of this fact. In fact, some have become so self-centered that they don't even stop to think before *deliberately* causing harm to others and *deliberately* deceiving others for selfish pleasures or gains. "I, me and myself" is their sole motto in life, and they religiously follow this principle, not caring how many souls they damage in the process, or how deep scars they leave behind on people.

Some scars never heal, you know. Some imprints become permanent. So be careful of the impressions you leave on the souls you come in contact with.

This is my fifth post for 2013 Ultimate Blog Challenge.

Really liked this post Chicky! I totally agree that even in the most unknowing way, we can leave a mark on someone's life. I really need to work harder at paying compliments and leaving a positive mark on others...even those I don't really know.
